Learning from ‘Failure’
The presentation focuses on the learnings, especially in a governance context, of project ‘failure’. It is based on some major projects the presenter became involved in, some years apart, the similarities and the lessons for participants and others.

IIANZ Lunchtime Session (13.15 – 14.00)

“The people who get on in this world”, wrote George Bernard Shaw, “are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and if they can’t find them, make them.”  The current economic climate calls for a robust career management plan, one that will, despite the recession-like conditions, progress your career in Internal Auditing by understanding the key factors needed to develop your career to the next level.  People who find career opportunities and put themselves into positions to be “luckier” than some of their colleagues rely on an elegant combination of strategy and effort.
